    Sadly, the game lacks a two-player mode, but the classics are so fun you wouldn't want to share anyway. [Jan 2002, p.152]
  2. Three of the four are really good.
  3. It's good for those that want all their classics in one cart - but the Game Boy Color versions are exactlt the same.
  4. Mediocre at best, but the straw that broke the camel's back was the fact that there is no battery to save your scores to. No battery, no scores, no fun.
  5. 40
    "Defender II." It's hard to imagine why that one is omitted, since it should use the same graphics as the included "Defender."
  6. What’s missing is anything to differentiate this collection from the other re-releases these games have seen. Even the most nostalgic gamers won’t find anything to get excited about.
  7. What an absolute disaster. These games are classics, and the only folks old enough to remember these will be put off by the sub-standard conversion done here. These games deserver better treatment. It could have been so much better.
